Modx 3.0.1-pl and 2.8.4-pl version

Guys, tell me modx 3.0.1-pl and 2.8.4-pl version will be different branches?

They are different branches now. MODX 2 will be supported for a while, but MODX 3 is the new branch and will be supported longer. Some MODX extras are not yet compatible with MODX 3.

Hello. Now 3 doesn’t fully work with packages and is it better to use 2?

It depends on how complex your websites are and what extras you have installed.

I’ve updated 18 of my sites to MODX3 - some needed a lot of attention after the upgrade, some just a little but most were absolutely fine.

I have 16 sites still to update to MODX3 and I’ve held back on them either because I know they rely on extras that are not yet compatible - or they’re just very complex sites and the idea of moving to MODX3 scares me!

However, if you take proper backups and, crucially, use staging - there’s nothing to lose by trying it out.

This list at SiteDash might help.

Hello. Based on what you have said, and the back. Everything should be ok

I have MODX 3.0.2 in my control panel- is DEV worth updating?

If in any doubt at all - don’t update your live site - use staging if possible.

Probably best to stick to the stable versions [currently 3.0.1-pl]

Hello. Thanks.
I wonder if modx is responding at all, or do they have a form of communication just like that?
